Remember Carmageddon? If you were a gamer in the late 90s, odds are you at least heard of the Death Race 2000-inspired vehicular manslaughter simulator (or its sequel, which came out a year later). Well, after a long hiatus, developer Stainless Games is back at work on a new entry in the Carmageddon series.
According to the press release on the official Carmageddon website, this new entry is titled Carmageddon: Reincarnation and is currently in the "early stages of pre-production development." Stainless Games is "actively seeking a partner with whom to move the project on to full production." (I believe that means the game doesn't have a publisher yet.) Nevertheless, Stainless was confident enough to announce a release time frame: some time in 2012. Here's what you can look forward to:
"Carmageddon: Reincarnation will feature the same black humour and comic violence that made the original game such a success." said Neil Barnden, Executive Director and Stainless co-founder. "All the laughs, the crazy power-ups, and extreme destruction will return. We will make sure the existing fans get what they want and expect from a Carmageddon game, and a new generation discovers the delights of sliding into a Cunning Stunt."
Stainless Games has been passing the time these past few years making games for Xbox Live Arcade and Windows. Some of those include Risk: Factions, Magic: The Gathering — Duels of the Planeswalkers, and Happy Tree Friends: False Alarm. One would hope the new Carmageddon game won't linger too long in pre-production, then.
I was a big fan of Carmageddon II, so I'm definitely looking forward to this. The third game developed by Torus Games never really drew me in, but this is different, since the original team appears to be taking a crack at another sequel.
